Vision Thing
Twenty-five whores in the room next door
Twenty-five floors and I need more
I'm looking for the can in the candy store
Two thousand hamburg four
And colours I ain't seen before
It's a small world and it smells funny
I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money
Take back what I paid
For another motherfucker in a motorcade
In a long black car
With the prettiest shit
From panama
When the sirens wail
And the lights flash blue
My vision thing come
Slamming through
It's a small world and it smells bad
I'd buy another if I had
Back
What I paid
For another motherfucker in a motorcade

Slamming through
Slamming through
What do wee need to make our world come alive?
What does it take to make us sing?
While we're waiting for the next one to arrive?
One million points of light
One billion dollar vision thing

Another black hole in the killing zone
A little more mad in the methedrome
One blinding flash of sense
Just like the president's
Well, I don't mind
Out of my mind
Blizzard king
Bring it on home
It's a small world and it smells bad
I'd buy another if I had
Back
What I paid
For another motherfucker in a motorcade

And a vision thing
And a vision thing
And a ...
Sha la la la
What do we need to make our world come alive?
What does it take to make us sing?
While we're waiting for the next one to arrive?
One million points of light
One billion dollar vision thing

Ribbons
I'm lying on my back now
The stars look all too near
Flowers on the razor wire
I know you're here
We are few
And far between
I was thinking about her skin
Love is a many splintered thing
Don't be afraid now
Just walk on in
(flowers on the razor wire)
(walk on in)
Her eyes were cobalt red
Her voice was cobalt blue
I see no purple light
Crashing out of you
So just walk on in
(flowers on the razor wire)
(walk on in)
Her lovers queued up in the hallway
I heard them scratching at the door
I tried to tell her
About marx and engels, God and angels
I don't really know what for
But she looked good in ribbons
So just walk on in
She looked good in ribbons
So just walk on in

Tie a red red red red red red ribbon
Love is a many splintered thing
Tie a red red red red ribbon
Don't be afraid
Just walk on in

Just walk on in
(incoming...)
(incoming...)
Just walk on in
Just walk on in
Flowers on the razor wire
Just walk on in...

Detonation Boulevard
On detonation boulevard...
Through the angel rain
Through the dust and the gasolene
Through the cruelty of strangers
To the neon dream
Long distance information
Just tell me where the manholes steam
A little girl waits on my station
With a new machine
On detonation boulevard...
I got wrecked out here
In a eldorado
I got wired, white-walled
This hot-wired sedan
I caught something weird in encenada
I've a brother of sorts in torquemada
Long distance information
Disconnect me if you can
On detonation boulevard...
Pink noise, white noise,
And a violet whining sound
It burns inside this car
No cops, no signs, no left, no right
No stops, no turning round
Well you can run but you can't ride
You won't get far
On detonation boulevard..
Bang bang

On detonation boulevard...
Through the angle rain
Through the rust and the gasolene
Through the cruelty of strangers
To the neon dream
Long distance information
I'll take the same
I got the fuel for the transformation
I'm a naked flame
On detonation boulevard...
Bang bangback to top
Something Fast
All the things
We never needed
I don't need them now
All the things
Were always confidential
And hidden from me anyhow

You can stand all night
At a red light anywhere in town
Hailing maries left and right
But none of them slow down
I seen the best of men go past
I don't want to be the last
Gimme something fast

God knows everybody needs
A hand in their decision
Some of us are not so sure
I seen his own held out
For a ride on television
I think he's still in baltimore

You can stand all night
At a red light anywhere in town
Hailing maries left and right
But none of them slow down
I seen the best of men go past
I don't want to be the last
Gimme something fastback to top
When You Don't See Me
When you donít see me...
Itís not a matter of going to grow
Itís not a matter of time or how I feel
Iím throwing off the shadow of a better man now
What you see is what you never had
Get real
Get another

I donít exist when you donít see me
I donít exist when youíre not here
What the eye donít see wonít break the heart
You can make believe when weíre apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you donít see me...

Oh, itís kind of different when your there
You can lease the peace of mind
You bought a mask, I put it on
You never thought to ask me
If I wear it when youíre gone
Get real
Get another

I donít exist when you donít see me
I donít exist when youíre not here
What the eye donít see wonít break the heart
You can make believe when weíre apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you donít see me...

You never learned
You bought me
Everything and less
I turned
You couldnít let me move
I guess, I donít deny, it donít disprove
What you see is what you lost
If I were you I wouldnít try
Get real
Get another

I donít exist when you donít see me
I donít exist when youíre not here
What the eye donít see wonít break the heart
You can make believe when weíre apart
But when you leave I disappear
When you donít see me...back to top
Doctor Jeep
Everybody shouts on I love lucy
Pee wee reads the evening news
A pre-owned song or a second-hand uzi
Everybody got a job to lose
Here come the golden oldies
Here come the hizbollah
Businessmen from south miami
Humming aor

Meanwhile...

I like cal and his dog napalm
I like ike and his itty-bitty a-bomb
Everybody got one, I want mine
You can order it up on channel nine
Meanwhile, in the sheraton,
Doctor jeep plays on and on and on
There was a time but it's long gone
Janie got a crush on the viet cong
Burning through downtown saigon
Me, I'm sold - down the mekong
Meanwhile, in the sheraton,
Doctor jeep plays on and on and on
Guns and cars and accidents
The threatened witness my defence
You can sell one another for fifteen cents
Well bye-bye mother, it's common sense
Meanwhile, in the sheraton,
Doctor jeep plays on and on and on

Everybody shouts on I love lucy
Pee wee reads the evening news
A pre-owned song or a second-hand uzi
Everybody got a job to lose
Here come the golden oldies
Here come the hizbollah
Businessmen from south miami
Humming aor
Meanwhile, in the sheraton,
Doctor jeep plays on and on and onback to top
More
Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
One thing I know
I want more
I want more

(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

D'you get scared to feel so much?
To let somebody touch you?
So hot, so cold, so far so out of control
Hard to come by, and harder to hold

Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

There are parts of me that don't get nervous
Not the parts that shake
You won't get what you deserve
You are what you take
Learning to cry for fun and profit
I'm not done yet
Counterfeit dollars or the english zloty
Anything I can get

Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
One thing I know
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

All the love that you can get
All the love
That I can't get to...back to top
I Was Wrong
You say stay and never leave
You say meant for ever
I could believe you, but I don't
You say we're almost all alone together
All alone
You say
You say you will
I know you won't

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
But I'm damned if I'll love yours

In a bar that's always closing
In a world where people shout
I don't wanna talk this over
I don't wanna talk it out
I was quite impressed until I hit the floor
Isn't that what friends are for?
Pain looks great on other people
That's what they're for

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
But I'm damned if I'll love yours

You say stay and never leave
You say meant for ever
I could believe you, but I don't
You say we're almost all alone together
All alone
You say
You say you will
I know you won't

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
But I'm damned if I'll love yours

In a bar that's always closing
In a world where people shout
I don't wanna talk this over
I don't wanna talk it out
I was quite impressed until I hit the floor
Isn't that what friends are for?
Pain looks great on other men
That's what they're for

I was wrong
I was wrong to ever doubt
I can get along without
I can love my fellow man
But I'm damned if I'll love yoursback to top
